I inherited a lot of things from my mom…. the brown eyes, the baking skills… but one thing that doesn’t appear to have been passed down to me is her green thumb. My mom is a mad gardener. The garden at the house I grew up in is huge. Actually, I will be visiting next week so I’ll have to take some pictures! But yeah, seriously huge.
And here I am, feeling amazingly accomplished that my three little herbs have been alive for two months now. But they have! I’m so excited! I’m pretty much regularly using the mint for my mojitos, the basil for my caprese, and the cilantro for my tacos.
Jordan bought this wooden box at a flea market we went to and I decided it was perfect for a little herb garden. I got a great deal on the mini chalkboard signs on The Plaid Barn (most others I’ve found are pretty $$).
And that’s pretty much where my green thumb stops. Everything else? Succulents. Why? Because succulents need very little tending to here in southern California climates. If I don’t water them for a couple weeks? Ain’t no thang.
Oh yeah, I forgot about my little vine. Not a succulent. And also not dead yet! My mom and I planted it at the front of our house in March. Still alive. Growing slowly. But alive! Maybe there’s still hope for my green thumb. How are your gardening skills?
